The most spectacular lighthouses in the Rías Baixas


The lighthouses are witnesses of shipwrecks, storms and legends. They are located in beautiful natural places. Thanks to the seafaring tradition of the province of Pontevedra, our coastline has important lighthouses all along our coast. They once guided the people of the sea in the midst of the darkness of the ocean and today offer us panoramic views of extraordinary beauty.
